The Great Hopewell Road: GIS Solutions Towards Pathway Discovery


SHOW MORE


Traversing hills, valleys, and streams, the sixty-mile long Great Hopewell Road might have begun at the monumental earthworks located in Newark, Ohio and ended near Chillicothe, at the site of another ancient earthwork named the High Bank Works. It is tempting to try to connect these two earthworks for they both contain circular and octagonal arrangements, aligned in ways that suggest that one of the complexes might have been built to complement the other, perhaps through a unifying religious ritual that followed the 18.6-year lunar cycle. This paper explores how the tools of Geographic Information SCience (GIS) can help unravel the past.
